Woelwaters, the ideal family getaway, is situated on the beach front at Onrusrivier, a small village on the southern Cape coast - a mere hour's drive from Cape Town International Airport. Woelwaters has an excellent location on the main beach, facing the lagoon and the Onrus river mouth. Here you can relax in comfortable beach house style, while watching southern right whales frolicking in Walker Bay from your terrace, the living room, and even from the main bedroom!

This part of the southern Cape coast is a well-known holiday and whale-watching destination. The house is literally a stone's throw away from the beach, and located at one of the more popular surfing spots in the area. The Onrus lagoon is a safe haven for little ones, while the surf provides the adrenalin rush for those who need it.

The house was originally buil...

We have been going to Woelwaters for many years with our friends and children. We love the close proximity to the beach and lagoon. Once your park your car, you walk everywhere. Children enjoy the rock pools and the spent hours in the lagoon learning...More

About the neighborhood
Onrus is a small village on the southern Cape Coast. It is just outside (10 minutes drive) of the bigger town of Hermanus. The area is well known for it's wineries, whale-watching, water sports and golf courses. It is an hour's drive from Cape Town (or the Cape Town International Airport), and has an unique ambience with the sea, fynbos-clad mountains and river mouths. The white sandy beaches, numerous restaurants, quaint coffee shops, craft markets and interesting local shops attract many visitors, especially in the whale watching season from June/July to early December. Hermanus is one of the few towns with a local whale-crier that announces the arrival and presence of southern right whales in Walker Bay and an annual whale festival in September.
Onrus itself has a wonderful sa...
